Distinguished Service Cross
Among the boys recently discharged
from the army, and now working for the
Company, none we believe has a finer
record than John H. Gill, formerly from
Henderson, in this State.
John is one of the number who helped
Europe and the world to a proper under
standing of the sort of fighting stuff to
be found in our good-humored, smiling
American lads. That’s John—he doesn’t
feel natural if he hasn’t something to be
smiling over; and most of the time he
The story, as John tells it, or rather
as one has to drag it out of John, is

very short. Entered service July 25,
1917, and was trained at Camp Sevier.
Left Camp Sevier April 30, 1918; sailed
May 8; landed at Brest, France, and
went to the Infantry Specialties School
at Langres for one month. From there
he passed in July direct to the first line
trenches at Ypres. Left Ypres in Sep
tember for the St. Quentin front It was
in the fighting near Bellecourt, on Sep
tember 25, that he was wounded—nine
times before the Boche stopped him.
(The italics are mine, not John’s.) Then
they took him to a hospital at Bath, Eng
land, to rest for a while.
And Uncle Sam reached out both hands
to him. One arm went around the boy’s
shoulders; the other hand pinned some
thing on his breast.
It was the Distinguished Ser\-ice Cross.
And yet John doesn’t look like a battle-
scarred veteran who went thru some of
the most bitter fighting of the Great
War. He’s just a normal, healthy-
minded, good-tempered American boy,
very much averse to talking about what
went on “over there.”
He is now a member of the Townsite
draughting force, under Nuebling.
The Baseball Association of Badin held
a general meeting in the Commercial

of the starting of the first league game,
in order to give everyone information as

league would start during the week of
April 21. Two games a week are to be
The matter of admission to the games
was discussed, and it was agreed that
ten cents should be charged for admission
to the league games, excepting those
under twelve years. This admission fee
will go towards defraying the expenses
of the league.
It was unanimously decided that each
team represented in the league should
post ten dollars with the treasurer be
fore it can participate in any games.
This ten dollars is to be used in de
fraying the expenses of the league.
The limits of each team are as follows:
The General and Main Offices are
to compose the Office team.

partment, Storeroom, and Laboratory
